Tanning products have come a long way since the days of Oompa Loompa Orange. With the right techniques and the proper product for your skin tone, you’ll be glowing like a Victoria’s Secret Supermodel all year round. It’s important to always exfoliate before application, and build your glow gradually to avoid orange surprises. To dodge dreaded splotchy spots, rub thoroughly into skin and apply sparingly around dry areas like knees, ankles and elbows–you might even try a dab of non-tanning moisture cream to protect these areas. Once you’re looking sun-kissed to your satisfaction, moisturize daily and reapply self-tanner once or twice per week.
